But in soliciting quotes from her friends, I got some lovely ones that, unfortunately, we didn't have time or space for, but that I'd like to be out where folks can read them.
And from somebody who'd like to remain anonymous, there's this gorgeous memory:
Her laugh-it was never something she did, but something that happened to her. A spontaneous eruption of happiness and life, so memorable and distinct, that I am certain her friends, upon reading this, will hear it echoing through their hearts.
Please, if you have memories to share about her, or about any of the people we profiled in our main article, we'd love to read them as reader comments, either there or to this blog post.
Happy Día de los Muertos time, y'all. I hope you're celebrating your loved ones, and I'm sorry for all our losses.
